Impacts of Tidal Energy Extraction on Sediment Dynamics in Minas Basin, Bay of Fundy

Researchers developed a numerical hydrodynamic and sediment transport model for Minas Basin in the Bay of Fundy, focusing on the sediment dynamics of the tidal inlets and flats. The model predicts the impacts of tidal power devices on the dynamics of coastal flows, sediment transport and seabed morphology.
